Newly appointed Lusaka minister Mulenga Sata
Mulenga Sata

Lusaka Province Minister Mulenga Sata has defected to the opposition UPND.

Mr Sata announced his resignation at a UPND press briefing in Lusaka Tuesday.

But the Patriotic Front-PF- says the defection of Mr Sata to the UPND has no impact on the ruling party.

PF Lusaka Province Chairman Horace Longwe says Mr Sata’s defection is inconsequential because he was not factor in the PF.

Mr. Longwe stated that the PF is aware of Mr Sata’s plans and that he wanted to coerce other Lusaka councillors into defection but declined.

The PF Lusaka provincial chairman also commended two councillors, Robinson Kalota and Humfrey Kapapula who he said resisted attempts to force them to defect to UPND.

Mr Longwe was speaking at a press briefing held in Lusaka.

And Mr Kapapula revealed that Mr Sata had invited him to the home of UPND leader last night were he was informed that he should attend a press briefing this morning which he declined.

And Mr Kalota wondered how many people have been duped into joining the UPND in a similar manner.

    • We are all Zambians. What is lacking is a visionary leadership, one who is not
      corruption inclined due to poverty, one who is disciplined generally and
      one who has a track record of success at running business or any
      institution. HH answers yes to all these. People may say but Mulenga
      and others are corrupt. Yes they were under Sata and yes alot under
      Edgar Lungu but they will not under HH as HH is not a pauper going
      into state house to taste riches. Even corrupt but energetic people like
      Chishimba Kambwili can perform wonders under a visionary leadership
      like that of HH. For God’s sake what did we expect from Edgar Lungu?
      For him to run a corrupt free government when he was just rescued by
      Sata from abject poverty? We knew exactly what to expect from Edgar.
      We need to start…

    • We need to start afresh as a nation. HH should be that leader who
      united the nation, the one who destroyed tribalism, the one who
      created tribally balanced think tanks for mapping out the development
      agenda, the one who destroyed corruption etc. this is not time to think
      about original UPND membership but about bringing all Zambians
      together under a disciplined leader. He can even do what Edgar did of
      sidelining original party members but as long as it is not for corruption
      purposes but for development and good governance.

    • THis is a game changer – well could be.

      I have heard about him not having a grade 12 certificicate but the PF should be careful on what they say about this defection.

      To blutantly strip his manhood in public and undermine what he did for this would be a mistake.

      They should thank him and wish him well.

      But do not be fooled, this is more than just a defection, this will compromise the PF, Remember they also have MMD Ministers in their Government. Those are not PF.

      Mulenga carries Legacy within him and I fear that , this defection could pyscologically tilt the till to UPND largely because of what he brings( A son of the owner of PF).

      This cant be swept under the carpet. It has changed the whole dynamics of the landscape this August.

      I know where the momentum has tilted…

    • I think PF are more in trouble than they are admitting.

      I am aware of the Grade 12 factor with Mulenga.

      But this has tilted the balance to UPND and in my eyes the damage could be unrepairable .

      Mulenga carries Legacy and history (being the son of the owner of the whole damn thing).

      Thanks

    • Nkani Yalula A Lungu, HH is a plunderer. Dont forget that. We do indeed need clean leadership but at the moment, what is on offer is three evils and we have to pick the best of them. ECL is ineffective, HH is a plunderer, and Nawakwi scandalous (Carlington maize scandal). So when you say: What is lacking is a visionary leadership, one who is not corruption inclined due to poverty, one who is disciplined generally and one who has a track record of success at running business or any institution. HH answers yes to all these’, please remember that HH is not clean.

    • THE YOUNG MAN HAS EVER BEEN WEAK AND non-existent TO SOME EXTENT. He is a coward and if not been the father to help him ascend to top positions, he would have useless selling dogs on the streets. I can agree with Kambwili that Mulenga Sata has not been a factor in Lusaka Politics. He has failed as a councillor and mayor. He is very weak that gentleman. This could be the end of his political journey that has difficult to make coz he is just spoon fade like a 6months baby!

    • Mulenga, just like Miles, is not a factor in PF. He has been riding on his father’s name. He’s not known outside the city of Lusaka, so UPND don’t should not get excited over picking up excess baggage dropping off from PF

    • UPND cadres are blind. Carrying Sata to your party is working against you in western and N. Western Province. You will recive low votes from the two provinces. UPND is now PF.congulatulations PF for giving that dead party some life. but be rest assured that people will vote for Edigar bcoz we have seen that these defections are based on hatred. the same people fought Lungu last yr but failed now the teamed up to joing a fellow hater who is dull of bitterness. Birds of the same feathers….

    • Zambians love Lungu not because of Sata but becuase of the way he has managed the country after the death of Pres Sata. The continuity in the management of projects wich sata left is unbelievable. Not even the Hater HH can perform like this. I WANT TO ASSURE ALL UPND SUPPORTERS THAT HH IS LOSING AGAIN.

    • We are not geting the reasons for these defections. Hatred will not develop our country if UPND was to be voted into power. What are the reasons given by Mulenga to leave PF. Is it poor economic performance? Which was initiated by his father? Iam sure he wants to come and initiate PF policies in UPND becoz UPND have on clue on how to run a country

    • Mulenga is one smart guy among the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise … this is a huge blow no matter what kind of spin anyone in the PF wants to put on it. The kid is a well trained engineer with such a brilliant mind.

      ECL’s mistake was he announced too early about a future running mate, that made the alliance with MMD (though I have never been fond of them) hard to actualize. Now, unless he had Dr. Kaseba as that future running mate, he has just about lost the entire MCS clan.

      Believe it or not it is hard to win this election without half the MCS Clan behind you. You can lose some and win some but you can afford to lose them all. This is a game changer … I still put my money on ECL, though! May the best team win!!!

    • All this I predicted better than the fake PF prophets.

      Bravo Mulenga Sata. This is a timely move after seeing the wako ni wako tribalism perpetrated by RB using naive Lungu.

      RB very soon will come on board with all his children. Right now Henry is on his father case persuading him to support UPND and now is the right time when Lungu ‘s administration is weakened.

    • UPND IS NOW A “SMALL PF”
      It is shameful what is going on in our party. I look closely at who is joining the party from PF and can see very soon UPND will be swallowed up by these people. Our identity is gone. Our leaders are quiet. PF is now very loud in and outside the party. What has gone wrong?
      KK did not need the opponents to get independence, Chiluba never allowed MMD to be swallowed by the opposition to come into power. MCS did not depend on the opposition to go to State House.
      I do not see HH making it this year for the blunder he has made. This is a national disaster. BB

    • This is a huge vote of no confidence in ECL. Think about it, Mulenga spend alot of time with him at State House and as provincial minister, leaving his father’s party isn’t a decision one just wakes up and makes. There must be more beneath the humble persona they try hard to sell, just who is ECL?

    • Wait and see. How can Mulenga Sata honestly condemn ECL. ECL appointed Mulenga to be a Deputy Minister. Mulenga father, MHSRIP, never even appointed him a Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Public Works despite Mulenga being an Engineer. Please let’s give credit where it is due.

  9. Edgar has no direction. He became president by accident. Just hear him answering questions from journalists at the airport when he is going or coming from somewhere. He speaks like a pure cadre in opposition. No inspiration from a so called president! Morons in PF made a costly mistake, Miles Sampa was going to inspire and unite PF.

  10. Why these defections now? Where were they all along? Am not a politician or a political analyst but I think there is no genuiness in most of these politicians. A number of them have a bad record. All those without grade 12 cerificates are now in fear of losing their jobs and possibly solicit comfort in the party which others have laboured to build. Can a leopard change its spots? Or can an Ethiopian change his skin. However God is the only one who will ultimstrky liberate us. Shalom.

    • Lungu is gradually being isolated by his own stoopidity. It is best to keep your enemies close so that they remain pissing inside your tent. That way you can keep an eye on them.

      0

      0
    • Grade 12 issues will not go away by jumping from party to party. Mwaliteta and Mulenga’s defections show that the grassroots will not give Lungu a chance and these people jumped ship regardless before it became a shipwreck. They have seen up-close the disaster that Lungu is presiding over. Really

  13. It was a grave mistake for E Lungu to lead PF ,he just cant hold the PF party together .The only thing he has proved to be good at is fostering relationships with fellow easterners at the expense of the party. The biggest wrong move he made was to form a partnership with corrupt Banda and bring on insult styled Dora all at the expense of the party . Not even one senior minister is happy with EL ,is a very isolated president and all the public affection and defense they show him is pure pretense . He seem to be preoccupied with things that we cant see , he works less for the country and he also works less for the party ,all is works is about himself thereby neglecting important structures. I serious see more Sata in HH now and less tha 5% in EL

    • @Luapula fish I agree with you entirely. Lungu is one uninspiring leader who’s pholosophy is unknown. I have no doubt that even his Ministers don’t know what he stands for hence the contradictions in government policies. The man is so disorganised in words and actions leaving you wondering just how sobber he is. He offers no direction to national problems apart from harassing members of the opposition.

Mulenga Sata defects becausr Edag Lungu has ‘failed’ to pursue his late fathers vision ; Nepotism, Tribalism, failure to consult others, recklessly plunging the economy into decline due to unplanned for roads, etc etc. We all know that Edgar Lungua reign has been that of ‘damage control’ of the mess Mulenga’s father left. After surviving on selling dogs today Mulenga is super rich ! Seems UPND is becoming a recycle bin for Grade 12 failures like Sata and Mwaliteta. Thats why Maureen has recently backed off from being subordinated to Grade 12 failures lile GBM and now Mulenga

  24. Mulenga Sata has defected because he has not been given the full ministerial position he thought he would be given even when his father never gave him that. His father advised him to start low in politics and rise gradually but the young man is looking for a meteoric rise which he will not get with UPND. He also thought PF was going to plead with him to stand on Lusaka Central Constituency seat. But he never got it. That is the problem with conceited people. At least he has joined a party with another conceited person at the helm and we will see what chance he gets. Just wait for UPND to lose and you will see them trooping back to PF looking for jobs. Kabili, they think UPND will win and they will get full ministerial jobs.

  28. Where did things go wrong in PF following Sata’s death?
    1. Edgar Lungu was considered a transition president to pave way for fresh party elections for the 2016 vote. He has decided to stay on when it’s clear within the party he is not a leader who has intellectual and moral capacity to take the party and country forward. 2. RB involvement was initially tolerable to enable the party cross the bridge. The clawing into PF government of the likes of Dora has been slow poison that has provoked anger among many PF members. 3. At the centre of Lungu leadership are characters who were either dismissed or hived off by Sata (Emmanuel Mwamba, Kaizer Zulu, Mumbi Phiri, Sunday Chanda and Father Bwalya). He dislodged them for a reason. Shockingly, though not surprising considering the caliber of…

  29. Shockingly, though not surprising considering the caliber of Lungu, he has made them his key frontmen and women; rejecting common sense. At the end of the day, the party lacks persona for lack of credible personalities with both moral and academic distinction. We are seeing the results nationally. Those with brains will defect unless they are holding onto some material gain. This is an excellent opportunity for HH. He has in one year transformed UPND from a perceived regional party to a national party. My desire is that HH should appoint Kaseba Sata as his running mate (presuming PF will still be in existence before 11 August)..

  32. Zambians are praying everyday. God will deliver Zambia for better. Proud comes before the fall. As Christian Nation Zambia will get a good deal. I am shocked but I am sure what is happening is God’s guidance. Now I have respect for HH because it is not easy to make such headways while in opposition. I want to google this guy HH. He must be be smart.

  33. Well Mr. Sata first we shall want to know how it is you bought the following vehicles on a deputy-mayors salary(allowance) Land cruiser VX, on a mayors salary (Range rover Vogue, Mercedes Benz ML500 new), oh and how you ‘bought’ a house from Phiri, razed it down and built a new one within 90 days!….then the trip to Korea, London, SA and never mind your ‘friends’ the Chinese….fate will follow you and you will account for all the money you have plundered regardless of who is in power

  36. Mulenga Sata will not derail PF nor tip the balance to UPND by his defection. Who really is Mulenfa Sata to change the game. If Zambian people vote for ‘the son’ of one of the worst Leaders Zambia ever had in terms of presentation and character then we gave a huge problem as a people. But I trust Zambians to have more brain space, especially that they are able to understand that PF under Lungu HAS PUSHED out all the unstable characters that were riding the PF Boat because of association with President Sata and who felt entitled the respect of Zambians because of that.

    This is good and is a ‘result’ for President Lungu, whom many on LT had suggested was campaigning to remove the ‘We are entitled and Justified’ members. President Lungu is a serious Politician with the ability…

PEOPLE STILL HAVE A LOT OF CONFIDENCE IN PF THAN WHAT SOME PEOPLE MIGHT THINK. PF IS A VERY STRONG AND BIG ORGANISATION THAT WILL CONTINUE BEING IN POWER EVEN IF IT CHANGES ITS LEADERSHIP AND MEMBERS. CHANGE IN ZAMBIA DOESN’T JUST HAPPEN IN ONE DAY. PF PARTY IDEALS AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS THAT HAVE SPREAD ALL OVER ZAMBIA THAT PEOPLE CAN SEE FOR THEMSELVES WILL BE CONSIDERED WHEN VOTING IN AUGUST. THE ANOINTING OF GOD IS ON EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU AND SO HE WILL CONTINUE IN LEADERSHIP EVEN AFTER THESE AUGUST 2016 ELECTIONS. THERE IS NO ONE WHO CAN DEFEAT GOD’S ANOINTING HERE ON EARTH.

He has all intelligent information including the projected outcome of election results from the OP. This is a foregone conclusion. PF is finished. What are you going to tell abena Muchinga, Luapula and na ba Bemba? You won the January 2015 elections using the Sata name. Now The son and nephew (Mulenga Sata and Miles Sampa) are working with UPND. Romour has it that even the surviving spouce (Kaseba) is being qouted by UPND! The whole Sata family is now PF! It is a bitter pill to swallow but the writings are on the wall and its too late for the PF to remedy the situation. Can President Lungu stand…

What intelligence has Mulenga shown in all the time he was privileged to play on the high stage of politics? How many speeches did he make? What did his ‘honorary’ post at state house entail? Most politicians on the Zambian political landscape worked really hard to get where they are including HH who is now reduced to collect Strays ejected from their party’s. This man now joins his other friends who challenged Lungu for Leadership all arranged by Scotty Boy, Zambia’s Albatross, or the ‘cross we have to bear.’ They have just regroup elsewhere because the PF inner group who masterminded President Lungu’s ascendency…

  44. These people fought ECL during the runner-up to the convention, so morally, it’s very difficult to work with someone you fought. With the grade twelve (12) clause, Mulenga sata is now confused but joining the upnd is the last mistake that he has made. Let’s wait and see this time the goalkeeper is there ( ECL). In January 2015, there was no goalkeeper and upnd failed to score so let’s see if at all they have good penalty takers this time around.

  45. In my dream, a very deep ditch was dug as a trap for President Lungu to fall in. When I arrived at the scene very early in the morning before anyone else, I found the UPND president Hakainde Hichilema there trying to see if President Lungu had fallen in. In the process of checking, HH fell in the ditch himself and hit his head against a big rock down the ditch. I tried to help but there was nothing I could do and I woke up. A huge ditch is being dug for ECL and it look so really deep, but am keen to see how this dream unfolds. So for so true. I cant wait for August 11 to see how it goes.

  46. Mulenga Sata must be respected for defecting because its his right. I strongly believe no individual in the PF is bigger than the party itself. All these defections can not be compared to the gap the President left when he died but PF went on to win the by-elections. I think PF are stronger than they were in January last year and all these ”transfers” wont affect them very much.
    Life goes on PF lives on.

  48. Mulenga Sata may not have a huge following in PF but his defection from PF to UNDP is significant. It shows that McMillian’s wind of change is blowing across Zambia. Mulenga Sata’s defection means a vote of No Confidence in the leadership of PF and especially President Lungu. Politics is about numbers so Mulenga Sata’s defection is a huge boost to HH and UPND. After Parliament is dissolved we can expect more defections from PF and MMD. Lungu’s titanic ship is wrecked and will soon sink. Captain Lungu is in trouble.

      Press Statement

      23rd April 2015

      We are appalled at the current revelations of corruption by senior staff of President Edgar Lungu at State House and other government ministries. In particular, we are concerned about allegations of corruption against Deputy Minister at State Hose Mulenga Sata, Special Assistant to the President Kaizer Zulu, Permanent Secretary Chilubanama, as well as the Minister of Finance Alexander Chikwanda and his son, Bweembya.

      These senior officials are facing serious allegations of corruption which are denting the image of State House. Corruption allegations at these high offices only breed further contempt of the office of the President if no action is taken. We have seen so often that despite these allegations being made, very…

  55. @HH Tichilema or whatever you are called. Do not massage your conscience by choosing to live in self made description. Wake up to the reality that there are many more ‘voter-pulling’ individuals about to denounce your party. You will remain alone believing in the impossible. Those guys you think do not matter (Guy Scott, Katoloshi, Sampa, etc) will pull huge numbers from your strongholds. People’s loyalty to PF has crash landed unceremoniously and you will be lucky to even go into 2011 with any credible PF founders. My brother or sister, the economy has been cause for voter defection!!! People have long defected and it’s done and dusted. Where do you live or why surely can’t you see? Are you like my brother Samuel Ngoma (aka Senior Citizen) who always supports losing parties?

Why is there so much interest in this topic? You know the answer. But for us in North Western Province, we know how Mulenga’s Father hated us and how he wished we could be wipped out from the face of Zambia. So UPND just be cautious and hand Mulenga well because you may be putting salt on the wound of Kaondes, Lundas and Luvale where many of your votes come from.

    Only those who are jealous and envious of President Lungu’s achievements in his one year term in office and know they will not be in his team are running away like lost hyenas.
    What on earth has Mulenga Sata done for the people of Lusaka in general and PF in particular other than just being the lazy son of his late father? he was a mayor of Lusaka and the city was dead.

PF is still very popular and they will win the August 11 elections without any problems at all. The people who wanted to challenge him will all disappear and join UPND then after August 13 they will again start coming back to PF looking jobs, wait and see. ECL is not even worried as he will not loose anything, he brought the enemies closer to him and the same enemies have now released that they can not cheat him. Viva PF and ECL. Cooperbelt, Lusaka, Eastern, Central, North Western and Western Edger will be a victor.

  62. There is cause for fear in PF. There has been rampant theft, corruption and misuse of resources. Mulenga’s defection has been sudden and abrupt. His departure has left the rank and file and indeed the party bosses confused as they do not know who is next. It’s like there is a cat among the pigeons. Watch out, Haleisa Humwaice, Halikwata na plan!

  63. As Chinua Achebe wrote. “Things fall apart when the centre can no longer hold”. Clearly Lungu has failed to hold PF together. These defections confirm Lungu’s leadership failure. With Scot,Mulenga, Sampa, Kabinda etc gone, PF is now a shell of what it was under Michael Sata. The good thing is that all these defectors know how ECZ and PF were going to rig the elections. Lungu is now deserted and left to stew by himself in the PF wilderness. If PF loses this election it will disintegrate. Rigging these elections is no longer that easy with all these informers at hand. ECZ better play ball and deliver to Zambia clean elections in 2016.

  65. Mulenga Sata was not a factor in PF and will not become one in UPND. And in case Zambia is not a monarch where sons and daughters, nephews aunties etc inherit the reigns of power. This actually was demonstrated when KK wanted to groom his sons to take over from him but zambians rejected kK and all stood for in a shameful landslide defeat in 1991. Miles and Dry Scott attempted the same when Sata died but Zambians said NO, NO, NO. As you go to UPND I wish a lucky defeat awaiting you in August 2016. Don’t say I was not told.

  66. The PF is now stronger without the name of Sata. This name has become contaminated in politics to the extent that it has become adversely contagious. It is good we are getting rid of it permanently from PF. while we do appreciate that PF was founded by Sata members of his family should not use it to win sympathy. If truth be told Sata failed Zambians by embracing such elements as Kabimba, Guy Scott, Fred Mmembe. Towards his last days on earth things in Zambia were only drifting without a pilot. Mmembe was actually in charge of the country through his remote control connections.

I still urge people of Goodwill to hold on to need for intensive prayer and discernment to let God Alone reveal in the sub-conscience of each individual on whom has anointed as the next President and which Party is to be in Government. There is no need to become Grasshoppers yet. As for Adopted Hon. Mulenga Sata thanks for disappointing God who actually favoured you with Ministerial Appointment just for the respect of your deceased beloved Dad. Go well who knows what next….. in Bemba we say “Bayafye umutelelwe, tabasha balona nangu ukuponta!

  72. Quite shocked me am. You mean politicians even a pretence of a politician like Mulenga Sata can be this myopic? They can’t see beyond their short noses surely? This is the end of his political career this boy. There will be no dad Sata to help him resurrect his career which was just starting under Lungu. And the Lungu team will have no reason or motivation to forgive the boy. He is a true disciple of Judas.
    Anyway that is that, now let’s move on. Dr Canissius Banda, have you considered who will be paying your rents after August 11? I suggest that you get back your job as medical doctor in good time before your party is retired from the political lanscape.

His instinct tells him that Captain Lungu’s Titanic PF ship is In distress and will soon sink. Mulenga has chosen to jump off the ship b4 it capsizes.The PF Titanic ship is wrecking and Captain Lungu has no idea of how to steer the ship to safety. RB is advising Captain Lungu on how to rig the 2016 elections but will fail becoz the ship is sinking. Sata,Sampa,Scot etc are jumping from the ship wreck to safety. Well done Mulenga Sata !

    It is shameful what is going on in our party. I look closely at who is joining the party from PF and can see very soon UPND will be swallowed up by these people. Our identity is gone. Our leaders are quiet. PF is now very loud in and outside the party. What has gone wrong?
    KK did not need the opponents to get independence, Chiluba never allowed MMD to be swallowed by the opposition to come into power. MCS did not depend on the opposition to go to State House.
    I do not see HH making it this year for the blunder he has made. This is a national disaster. BB

Why do I say so? Delegates from non tonga speaking provinces who are many will gang up and remove the tribal tag from UPND by voting a non tonga and that will be the end of dominance by tongas in that party and in the end they will be ploting to form another tonga party.
